Choosing the Right Law School / Chances??? 155 LSAT 3.32 UGPA
« on: July 09, 2006, 05:36:58 PM »
Hi guys, I'm trying to get a feel of where I should/could go with these numbers.

First of all, anyone know how much LSAC will mess with my gpa? I went to McGill in Canada, and from what I've been told, Canadian schools are tougher with grades than the average US school. I'll probably be writing the LSAT again in September, so hopefully I'll be able to aim a little higher after that, but for now, I have to deal with the score I have. Here's some other info about my application:

McGill Honours Poli Sci major (History and Econ minors)
1 year exchange at Sciences Po Paris
MSc International Relations from Universiteit van Amsterdam in 2006-07 (or maybe London School of Economics or King's College, still waiting on decisions)
Iranian background (I don't know if that helps)

I still don't know what I want to study, but my background suggests international law, and I feel like if I focus my application around wanting to study int'l law, then it could look attractive to admissions peeps. Anyway, here are the schools I'm more or less considering. Any info about the schools, comments about my chances are more than welcome!

Cal Western
Golden Gate
Loyola Marymount LA
Santa Clara
San Diego
San Fran

Basically, I'd like to be at a school with an urban campus, preferably a big city, decent reputation, decent weather, etc...

Thanks in advance for the responses!
